Executed (according to sitter's dress) in the early 1830s, this superior quality miniature portrait shows an anonymous aristocrat depicted in the park of his residence, against a distant view of Mount Vesuvius. It is a typical work (for comparison, see our images nr.11-16) of Austrian portrait miniaturist Emile Bernhard Chevalier de Guerard, who was living and working in Naples at that time.

Emile Bernhard Chevalier de Guerard (1771 Dusseldorf - 1836 Naples) studied first jurisprudence at the Duisburg University but soon turned to fine arts, especially to portrait miniatures. In 1793 he accompanied Prince Auersperg to Vienna, where he was entrusted with commissions from Viennese court and aristocracy. From 1804-1806 he stayed in Lemberg (now Lvov, Ukraine) together with his brother François (engraver). In 1808 he married in Vienna and was appointed court portrait miniaturist. From 1817-19 Guerard worked for the family of Prince Schwarzenberg; at the same time he made some experiments of production of oils for painting and in 1819 he began selling through dealers. Despite his fame as a miniaturist he was in financial difficulties and was forced to produce miniatures for juwelers, who set them in brooches, boxes, lockets, etc.
In his last years Guerard was permanently on travels: in 1827 he lived in Venice, in 1831 exhibited in Rome and five years later lived in Naples, where he became victim of cholera, that was prevailing in the town.
